The Art & Science of TCM
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose, and treat various diseases. TCM focuses on restoring 'Yin Yang' balance in your body through regulating 'Qi' flow in exisiting meridians or channels to promote natural healing. Patients that present with similar symptoms may have different root causes of an ailment or vice versa. In TCM, every individual is treated uniquely based on his/her constitution, family history, diet, and environment. TCM treats the root cause of disease, eliminating associated symptoms while enhancing immunity, supporting physical and emotional health, and improving overall well-being. TCM includes the use of acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion, herbal medicine, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling.
Although scientific investigations into the efficacy of TCM to treat specific diseases are ongoing, many appropriately controlled scientific studies have reported remarkable benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicines in the treatment of various symptoms, diseases, and conditions. In fact, an offical report entitled Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials by the World Health Organization (WHO), a leading international authority of health-related matters, has listed conditions to which acupuncture provided effective treatment including low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, hypertention, leucopenia, and biliary colic, among many others.
